Michigan Senate urges federal Congress to adopt balanced budget amendment

LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan Senate is calling on Congress to hold a constitutional convention.

Senators passed a resolution Thursday urging a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. constitution.  The vote was along party lines, with all twelve Democrats voting no and Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer calling it a "thinly veiled political plan" to rewrite the constitution.

At least 17 states have passed the resolution, and if that number reaches 34, Congress will be forced to hold the convention.
